She is the Electrophysiology representative for the Heterotaxy Program and the Medical Director of the Surgical Electrophysiology Program, an intradisciplinary program that aims to improve outcomes for patients. The current focus of this clinical program and research efforts is to decrease postoperative heart block by using electrophysiology mapping to identify conduction tissue at the time of the surgical repair.

Being told your child has a heart problem, no matter how simple or complex, is overwhelming information for a parent to hear. One of my most important roles as a physician caring for patients with heart disease is to educate patients and their families about their condition. Applying my education and training to help relieve a family’s anxiety in this manner is one of the most fulfilling aspects of my job.
